Why I call him STINKY

Why do I call him STINKY??

Well it's simple, he STINKS. He has always stunk, since day one. (mum: according to Sunshade that is) He had that weird milky/stinky smell for a while and I hated it. Even tho that milky/stinky smell is gone, I still think he STINKS!

Here is a video to show you what I mean:

All the toys on my bed are mine, ones I play with, ones mum has to keep away from STINKY because once he touches them, I say bye bye to the toys unless they are washed thoroughly. The brown doggie toy mum picked up towards the end of the video was STINKY's. Watch my face, I made a "poo-poo" face, which is the face I make when I accidentally smell doggie poopies. I was looking away from it because it STUNK, of course, I walked away from that stinky toy of STINKY's.

Anyway, so mum took me to a store today, and told me I could pick ONE thing to buy. It didn't matter how much the thing was, mum said she would get it for me, but she told me to think it through before making my decision.

I thought about it long and hard. I wanted to get chewies, but I remembered all the chewies we had in the treat drawer. Mum only gives those to me when she feels like it. So buying more chewies would just give mum that much more power, so I decided against it. I wanted raw bones too, but then I realized, that was what mum's plastic cards were for. Even if I didn't pick raw bones, she would buy them for me anyway since it's part of my diet, so that would be a waste of my opportunity. I thought maybe toys would be good, but then, I knew STINKY would try to get it and once he touches it, the toy has no value to me anymore. I walked around the store, trying to see if they had Guinea Piggies. I've wanted one of those for the longest time. (mum: She stares at the Guinea Pigs whenever we are in a pet store.) Too bad this store didn't sell live stocks.

Since there were nothing I found suitable to buy on impulse, I decided to use my Aire-Brain a little and started thinking about something practical.

I ended up picking this:

(see, they actually make things like this, it's not just ME!)

It is an Aire Freshener for dog

(mum: okay guys, if you enlarge the first photo, it actually says "Air Freshener ....... for dog lovers". Miss I'm So Smart cropped the "lovers" part out.)

I read the labels carefully,

It says it can be used anywhere in the family room where STINKY leaves his stinky scent. And then the label got all mushy and sentimental about love and stuff, so I ignored that part.

It sounded worth a try, so I told mum that was what I wanted to get.

The first thing I did as soon as I got home was to test this Aire Freshener out. I decided the best place to hang it is close to the source,

I let it hang for a couple of minutes, and then I used my nose,

I was impressed.

My living room now smells much better!!!

I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone with a STINKY at home! I wonder if the company needs a sales rep?

(mum: DRAMA QUEEN!!!!)

I believe you. With a name like stinky it must be pretty bad, especially since most doggies like to roll in poop.

And poop is pretty stinky.

I believe you Sunshade, that pic of the air freshener hanging at Stinky's crate was so funny..

Hi SunShade!

I have forgiven Mom for not taking me yesterday:) She said that there was important work to do, even though I am not sure what is more important than PLAYING! Maggie and Mitch agree with me, I know! Hey, I LOVE the stinky boy sign:) I will talk to you at wine and cheese, okay? :)

jaffeboy said...

hmmm... I should ask MaMa to get one to hang around where Kaylie sleeps. She not only stinks, she is messy.

Ruby Bleu said...

Hi Miss Sunshade...
I can't believe your Mom took that photo of you. Makes you wonder what other incriminating evidence she might have of you...hmmmm.

The Stinky Boy Aire freshener made me and my mom totally crack up. You are a VERY practical shopper. But is Stinky really that stinky??? Maybe you just have a sensitive Diva nose...and that is ok.

Looking forward to chatting with you at the Pawty!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh my goodness.. Jaffa actually has a cutomised Aire Freshener?? Heheh.. I can see that you really don't like the brown dog!

Asta said...

I love the picture of the airfreshener on the cage, but poor Jaffa looks a little humiliated, give him a big kiss, he can't be all that bad
see you at the pawtyXOXOXOXOXOXO

Bogart H. Devil said...

Ohmygosh, I haven't seen mom laugh this hard in quite awhile... she thinks that Stinky is awfully cute (I guess he kinda looks like me when I was a wee pup)...


Joe Stains said...

Charlie said...
